This ruby-red pudding was a favorite dessert when I was a child growing up in a German family.—Helga Schlape, Florham Park, New Jersey


  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen sweetened raspberries, thawed
  • 1 cup red grape juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 lemon zest strip (1 inch)
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar


  1. Mash and strain raspberries, reserving juice. Discard seeds. Add enough water to juice to measure 2 cups; pour into a large saucepan. Add grape juice, sugar and lemon zest strip. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove lemon zest strip. Add tapioca. Cook and stir for 10 minutes. Pour into bowls. Cover and chill for 4 hours or until set.
  3. In a bowl, beat cream and confectioners' sugar until soft peaks form. Serve with pudding.
